I like all the photos in the series and this one is nice as well. The only thing I see as improvement is getting all that noise out of the sky and maybe sharpen it just a little bit...but apart from that very lovely. I like the colors and the composition is good as well. Nice, makes me want to sit back and relax for a while.

Tout en douceur! Great fluid curves and very nice colors. It's a beautiful smooth landscape. Don't see what I could say to improve it... perhaps a bit crisper?

Smooth curves and soft colors in that very relaxing picture ; this the one I like the most in your "patchwork" study because of simpleness and effectiveness;
one remark : what makes this shot effective (for me) is that the background fields colors are almost painted like, with a "woolly" texture. i think that the foreground grass doesn't match the same texture and breaks the overall feeling. This comes to my second remark which is that the "estimated" horizon is too centered, cutting the pic in 2 almost equal halves. these 2 remarks lead inevitably to a cropping suggestion that would cut the bottom grass.

The sky here comes off better than in your other Patchwork landscape. But again there's what I am interpreting as too much grain - or could it be a lack of sharp focus? Anyway, this type of landscpe will only have its full impact when there's perfect focus all the way through from front to back. But apart from that, I see it as well-composed and well-exposed. (Some might quibble with the fact that the horizon is placed in the centre, more or less - a blue sky is nice, but not interesting ni large amounts, and you might have given only one third of the image to the sky).
